"Have you ever that the world is a tuxedo, and you are a pair of brown shoes?" George Gobel once said this to Johnny Carson, and it is the best way I know to describe the CBU builders in a CBG world! We have started a facebook group to combat the idea that all cigar boxes that have necks are guitars! The ukulele lends itself perfectly to the cigar box instrument movement just based on the visual scale alone! It just looks correct! The box gives the uke strings a nice harp tone as well, and there are no slides or special tunings required! Any guitar player can easily pick one up and start playing something, especially with the assistance of tabs or charts! So it is to you, my brethren, that I say "join our group and let the world see that we are not alone in our quest to ROCK THE BOX!!
